We would like to announce a call for papers for the Eighteenth-Century English Literature session(s) that will be held at the 2012 RMMLA Convention in Boulder, Colorado, this fall.

We invite you to submit a proposal for a 15-minute paper that illuminates any aspect of eighteenth-century literature (i.e. any author, literary work, genre, sub-genre, philosophy, or historical event that impacted literatureof this century). Last year's sessions included papers on such diverse topics as anorexia in Richardson's Clarissa, voyeurism in Shelley's Frankenstein, animal rights in various periodicals, and "cityscape" in Blake's poetry. We hope that this year's sessions will continue to represent and explore the remarkable diversity of English literature in the Eighteenth Century.

Please submit a titled, 250-word abstract that includes your name, university affiliation, contact information, and audio-visual request (if needed) by March 1, 2012, to Heidi Giles: heidie@email.arizona.edu.

We will review submissions and respond to applicants by March 15, 2012. More information aboutthe conference is available at http://rmmla.wsu.edu/call/default.asp, and information about Student Travel Grants and the Charles Davis Award can befound at http://rmmla.wsu.edu/awards/grad-convention.asp and http://rmmla.wsu.edu/awards/davis.asp, respectively.

Thank you for your submissions!
